Bharatiya Janashakthi Party President Uma Bharti on Sunday said the party will not support the terrorist act of LTTE in Sri Lanka and condemned the attrocities against Tamils in the island nation. "We will never support terrorism. We will never support the terrorist act of LTTE. We totally oppose the attrocities done on Tamils in Sri Lanka," she told reporters in Chennai.
Stating that India need not send army to the island nation, she said the Sri Lankan government was competent enough to tackle their problems.
She appealed to the international community and all the human rights organisations across the globe to come forward and protect the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
She expressed hope that AIADMK General Secretary J Jayalalithaa, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, BSP chief Mayawati and Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee would support BJP-led government at the Centre. "The general sentiments of people in this country is that they do not want a Congress-led government", she claimed, and added the people had a "bitter" taste of Congress rule for not taking initiatives to control price rise.
She would conclude her country-wide tour supporting BJP Prime Minister candidate L K Advani in Rameswaram tomorrow.
